What's the shortcut to select Address bar of the current page on Google Chrome?
I always have to create a New tab to write in address bar. So is there any shortcut?

Control + L on Windows, or Command + L on Mac.

On Windows, F6 or Alt + D also works.

Ctrl + L and Cmd + L work in Firefox and IE as well. (I would also assume they work in Opera and Safari.) – Kris Harper Aug 21 '12 at 12:43
wow, it works... and on linux. i always used alt+d – wim Aug 21 '12 at 13:16

I guess you mean to select the address bar. ALT+D selects the address bar in most of the web browsers around.
